They could be just continuing the tradition of referring to ships as "she".

While they people running the mission do not depend on the rover for their livelihood the way sailors depended on their ship, I'm assuming it's still a group of mostly men working together over a long time period.

I would probably go with "it" myself, though.

Vista, 7 and 8 all use the same driver model. The only thing I can think of that would prevent a 8 driver working on 7 would be if the required manufacturer signing on the more recent 64-bit drivers was purposely not done for 7. There is no technical reason for such a decision, obviously...

I have not investigated whether it is possible to run unsigned 64-bit drivers on recent Windows versions.
